Default A wonderful treat!

The other day I had a horrible craving for ice cream. I went ahead and risked a dangerous trip down the frozen section of the grocery store, pointedly trying to ignore those delicious but fatally fattening favorites (say that ten times fast lol)! Then I came across some ice cream bars that said, "Made with coconut milk." I was curious and so I read the box. They are dairy free, contain 70 calories per bar and 3.5g of fat. They even have 1g of protein and 3g of fiber which I assume is from the coconut milk but I'm not sure. They are also labeled "USDA Organic" which may be of interest to some people. Anyway, I bought them to see how they tasted. I had my doubts considering they are dairy free and even fairly healthy, at least as far as ice cream goes. OH MY GOSH. They are soooo good! Its like a frozen mounds bar. Its a chocolate fudge bar with a hint of coconut. And its very creamy textured! This is perfect for when my sweet tooth nags incessantly at me. I don't eat them every day...maybe two to three times a week after dinner. I just love them! They are called "SO Delicious Minis." The bars are fairly small but they are thick. I definitely recommend them!

Cholesterol only comes from animal products - anything that comes from a plant like coconut will be cholesterol-free.

I love those finds...the little things that make life more delicious while still fitting in your plan.

I found them by the ice cream at Wal Mart. I would imagine that any grocery store would have them

Yeah the fudge ones are all I saw too at the store. They are the ones I got. I like them because they are like a frozen Mounds Bar with the hint of coconut in them!

That sounds wonderful. I've just recently acquired a taste for coconut milk (I had also heard from somewhere that coconut was really bad for you ... can't remember where, though).

I hope this isn't rude, but are they expensive? And do you get a good amount for the price? I'm a quantity over quality kind of girl.

You must be talking about the new 'So Delicious' Coconut line of products. I just noticed them at Kroger's! I'm trying the milk (unsweetened) and so far, I don't like it in coffee, but great in smoothies! I'll look for the ice cream, but I bet none of it is sugar free. And it does seem a bit pricey. But then again, anything that is a replacer for other stuff like real milk and soy milk is going to be. Except Almond milk -- it seems to have dropped lately.

I've noticed the price drop in Almond Milk too. I actually really liked the coconut milk. I put it in my hot chocolate. Yum!

I also drink the vanilla milk in this brand. It is soooooo yummy!! an added bonus is that I don't get that nasty milk "skin" that sometimes get when I make my morning oatmeal with 1 percent milk. They also make yogurt. the coconut flavor is delicious
